Collaboration and the Classroom

The TWU Libraries are committed to continuous improvement--in the resources we make available to our patrons and in the services we provide.  Our collections' print and electronic resources change often.  An assignment developed by a faculty member one semester--because of database or other library resource changes--can often be augmented by new and exciting resources the next.  How, then, can TWU faculty members arrange to expose their students to the latest in electronic and print resources?  The Collaborative Assignment Program, or C.A.P.

Through C.A.P., Reference Librarians at TWU partner with faculty members to develop library assignments and classroom activities that incorporate the latest applicable resources the libraries have to offer.  As a result, students benefit.  They are introduced to the latest in electronic and print resources, and at the same time become familiarized with increasingly complex research concepts and activities.  They strengthen their research skills--making them stronger researchers, more efficient library users, and better students.

C.A.P. is available on the Denton, Dallas and Houston campuses of TWU.  To get started--or to learn more--faculty members are invited to contact:
